Griffith Park reopens after bomb squad deems suspicious package non-threat

GRIFFITH PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Griffith Park and Observatory reopened as scheduled Sunday morning after being shut down on Saturday for the second time within a week.

Saturday's closure was because of a suspicious-looking package.

Sightseers had to evacuate after an employee found the package on the east side of a building.

A bomb squad that was called to the scene determined the package posed no threat.

Last week, Griffith Park and the surrounding area was closed for several days because of a wildfire.
